HP Officejet 4630 All-In-one Printer

The hp Officejet 4630 Printer is a mid-range multifunction inkjet printer that offers remarkable features for its price. This product is a convenient and economical choice for small offices and those who do not want to incur high costs; But at the same time, they are looking for a multifunctional device for printing, faxing copying, and scanning.

Hp Officejet 4630 Design and features

The new 4630 design is very pleasing. The combination of matte and glossy surfaces has given the device a professional and stylish look. HP has decided to replace the paper tray at the bottom of the machine so you can open and close it easily; Without holding the tray in front of your hands and feet.

Without paper, the machine weighs 6.2 kg and measures 446 x 332 x 189 mm. The feeder of the machine can hold up to 100 sheets and you can change the size of the paper with sliding clamps. The “ADF” paper feeder can hold up to 35 sheets and can be used for scanning and copying.

The front panel is very simple and has a screen with a backlight to control the functions of the device. Dialing is also located on the right side of the panel, which is used for dialing faxes as well as entering contact numbers in the phonebook of the device. Unfortunately, there is no “Micro-SD” card reader or flash memory port for this model, which makes it impossible to print quickly from the flash memory or copy scanned documents to the flash memory, and the computer must be used for this purpose. By first copying the files to the computer via flash memory and then sending the print command from the computer to the printer. Devices that have a flash memory port and direct printing capability no longer require a computer to print and scan, and you can scan or print your files directly even when there is no computer.

Hp Officejet 4630 Installation and networking

HP has provided a handbook on how to install the device and how to fix any problems, But the installation CD that comes with the package is easy to install with a few clicks, and the user can connect the device to the computer with simple instructions. There are also several other software on the CD that comes with the device that you can use to update the printer software and buy printer paper and ink online. In a short time, you can connect the printer to the computer via USB cable and start the printing process; But if you want to use the “Cloud” sharing capabilities for printing, you have to think a little be patient and entering the wireless network first.

If you’re a member of Apple or Google Cloud Systems, the easiest way is to use Apple AirPrint and Google CloudPrint, which let you use your documents using iOS devices and Chrome browsers. Send to printer for printing. You can also enter your “SSID” name and password for your wireless network directly into the printer. HP has provided a way to use a wireless printer without the use of a “router” (such as wireless Internet modems), which it calls “Wireless Direct”.

If the 4630 was equipped with an Ethernet port, it would be no less; Unfortunately, at this price point, having this communication port seems a bit unlikely, and this device is useless. With a wireless presence, the lack of Ethernet will not be a problem for many users.

Hp Officejet 4630 Ink cartridges

When we open the body of the 4630, the inputs of the ink cartridges will be visible. A cartridge for black and another cartridge that has three colors in common, blue, yellow, and red. Triple cartridges may cost you money at first; But the big drawback of these cartridges is that even if one of the colors of the cartridge runs out, you have to replace the cartridge completely.

Keep in mind that print quality also declines slightly as a result of the triple cartridge. Therefore, if this issue and the quality of color photo printing is very important to you and you want to have a large volume of photo printing, it is better to consider another device such as Epson Expression XP-420; But do not forget that better quality always comes with a higher price.

As always, HP offers higher capacity cartridges under the XL models. Slightly cheaper than buying two regular cartridges; However, printing costs per sheet are a bit more expensive than laser printers. But keep in mind that the more you spend when buying a printer, the less you will spend on consumable parts and vice versa!

Hp Officejet 4630 Performance

If high print speeds are one of your top priorities when buying a printer, 4630 may be a bit of a disappointment. In our experiments, 4630 printed only 4 sheets of black and white and 2.5 sheets of color per minute. White print speeds are slightly slower than competing models like the Epson XP-420. The Epson XP-420 can print up to 8 pages per minute.

The speeds expressed by the manufacturer are expressed for the lowest resolution and printing of the text. It is obvious that if you use high resolution and photo printing, the speed of the device will decrease.

The triple cartridge used in the 4630 has a slight loss of quality in color photo printing; Of course, if you are not a professional photographer, you will not notice these disadvantages in print quality. Our opinion is that it is better to use this printer to print graphic shapes and text and go to other models to print photos.
